3/5 Let down by service and amenities
Daydream Island has potential which is let down by money-grabbing the guests who are a captive market. The restaurant options are extremely limited, overpriced and offer, at best, mediocre quality. The breakfast service is reasonable, but you need to get in early. The tours are poor and overpriced, however they do have Kayaks, SUPs and Sailing Catamarans for free hire - which I strongly recommend. Unfortunately Daydream Island's Chinese Owners do not pay their staff well, and the service reflects that. Would not return. 3/5. Recommend max 2-3 night stay.

Beautiful island, shame about the bar staff.
Ah-making! Such a beautiful place, we’ll be booking again soon and for longer! Some of the staff are lovely people however there was a few rude bar staff, which was disappointing. But all in all, such a beautiful place.

The activities on and off the island were amazing. The reception and tour staff were great. The food, while not having a lot of options was really good. The staff in the restaurants were appalling and the service was really poor. And lastly there was kangaroo poo everywhere.

When me and my partner came to settle the bill there was a problem with their systems they took the payment on my partners card multiple times telling us that it didn’t go through. Turns out now we are a few days home the payment got taken multiple times, I’ve been trying to contact the resort multiple times by phone to no avail. I’ve been on hold for up to an hour every time I try and call! This is a disgrace! The island it’s self is lovely and so is the hotel. Staff were all very nice. The food on the other hand was below average and let the place down. Very mediocre! Not much choice and being a vegetarian even less choice I ended up having the same dish multiple nights. I would recommend staying a few nights but not more.
